Question about Akai PDP-4249G 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television
I have an Akai pdp4249g plasma television. Every time I turn it on the tv goes to a blue screen and says auto signal selecting and it tries to detect a signal. It will say signal searching for a few seconds and then says no signal detected. I have the cable hoooked into the television. I have also tried hooking up a DVD player and the television does not detect any input source. I do not have the factory remote and I do not have a manual for the television so I am pretty much stuck at this point. When I called customer service the representative suggested there may be something wrong with the tv unit. Does any one else have any other ideas? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you in advanced.
Yes, I seem to have fixed the problem on my Akai using some creative google finds. One of two things worked - not sure which:
1. Leave the set unplugged overnight - it must let the electronics reset when the residual charges clear
2. For my Akai (remotes and models vary), hit in remote's sequence quickly - brightness, freeze, menu, enter - this places you in some screen that offers a hard reset option. That didn't work right away, but i did it before the option above and then the set worked again.
My problem was really odd because it worked for the component inputs and you could see the video and TV signals inside the PIP windows, but not full screen as primary input. Why the TV could 'see' the signals in a PIP windows but not detect them as primary I have no idea.
